We stayed here first in 2005 when the hotel was absolutely wonderful. Returning here with the mother-in-law we were expecting more of the same. The location is absolutly fantastic (if very big church bells don't bother you). We had a room overlooking the Minster. However there were no bathrobes (the Mother-in-law got one next door) and one room wasn't ready when we checked in at 4pm. The lift was also out of service.
I got the distinct impression on a slippage in the standards of the hotel and service in the four years since I had been before. Breakfast was good, but not as good as before and the service was not as attentive.
Overall a good place to stay in York, extremely central with valet parking to dispose of your car.
